LONGINES NOVELTIES - APRIL NEWS 2021
LONGINES LEGEND DIVERS
Longines adds even more variety to the Legend Diver line for 2021, adding splashes of color to the classic 42mm model in deep degradè blue and brown.
The new blue dial and brown dial Longines Legend Diver models give this classic design a new personality, influencing its character in dramatically different ways.
These updated versions retain the spirit of the original watch. The new 42mm watches have a few updated technical features, such as a case-shaped sapphire crystal, two screw-down crowns, and a screw-down caseback. They are water-resistant up to 300 meters and feature an automatic movement with a silicium balance spring, manufactured exclusively for Longines.
Available in blue or brown, the dial features luminous hands, interspersed hour markers, and Arabic numerals enhanced with Super-LumiNova rectangles.
LONGINES AVIATION BIG EYE
Throughout its long history, Longines has created pieces that have stood the test of time. A re-issue of a chronograph with a 1930s’ design, The Longines Avigation BigEye is now available in titanium with a petrol blue dial. This timepiece – characterised by the visibility of its dial and its oversized 30-minute counter – joins the great tradition of pilot watches. Driven by an exclusive chronograph movement fitted with a silicon balance-spring, this new model also comes with a 5-year warranty.
LONGINES HYDROCONQUEST MODELS
The new Longines HydroConquest watches come in dial options of blue, black or grey – each in a sunray finish – and a matte green option.
The date taking residence at 3 o’clock on the dial takes the place of the Arabic numeral, leaving the remaining 12, 6 and 9 o’clock numerals to retain a sense of balance across the dial. The large hands are also treated in gold colour and filled with Super-LumiNova with a green glow in dark conditions.
The new Longines HydroConquest two-tone use the self-winding L888 calibre. The movement comes with an improved 72-hour power reserve compared to the previous 64-hour running time of 2018 models. It also comes with a silicon balance-spring to protect against magnetic forces and beats at a rhythm of 25,200 vibrations per hour.
